Une nuit super agréable dans un lieu splendide et très calme.
Un lieu pour les amoureux de la nature à recommandé.
Je n'ai pas eut la chance de rencontré Laetitia mais nous nous sommes eut assez souvent au téléphone et elle à été très agréable et très sympathique avec nous.
Nous recommandons ce lieu avec le charme de la maison typique Corse ....
Pour les amateurs d'authenticité, charmante maison dans un village typique, au milieu des montagnes. Vue imprenable sur la mer, qui est à 20mn de voiture. Un endroit à recommander sans hésiter, avec un seul bémol, pour l'escalier qui n'est pas à la portée de jeunes enfants, ou de personnes qui auraient des difficultés de mobilité.
We loved our stay at Laetitia's apartment in Rapale! The apartment has amazing views of the sea and mountains. It is a drive to the beach (20 mins) but we loved & preferred being in mountains with the breezy air and nice views. We were totally relaxed in the sleepy, small and quiet town of Rapale. We loved sitting out on the porch - the sunset is breath taking. The neighbor, Paola, was extremely helpful and available to answer any questions we had. Laetitia was also very communicative. We stayed in the summer and there were no problem with bugs or heat. It is breezy and cool at night and even with all windows open we didn't have bugs. The house is very well outfitted with everything you need for cooking. Just a few things to note on the apt: the listing says there is wifi but there is no wifi in the apt. There is also no wifi in Rapale (at least we could not find any). The closest wifi is a 20 min drive in San Florent. Also there are two floors and the stairs are really steep. It wasn't a problem for us but if you have any issues with stairs this isn't the right apt. The furniture/beds are not modern but it feels quaint and like you are living as a real Corsican! I would definitely recommend this apt.
